The Paediatric Trials Network Australia (PTNA)
- provide a platform for advocacy for collaborative clinical research for paediatrics in Australia.
- improve the Australian operating environment for paediatric clinical trials sponsored by industry.
- increase the quality and quantity of investigator-driven paediatric trials.
- strengthen the evidence base for the treatment of all children and adolescents.
Rather than duplicate the effort of other established paediatric research networks, the PTNA hopes its infrastructure and advocacy efforts can complement the activity of other networks and benefit all paediatric researchers, and ultimately Australian children. We welcome enquiries from any researchers that may wish to collaborate through the PTNA and gain access to its infrastructure.
This network facilitates access to a critical mass of researchers and enough volunteers across the country that clinical trials can be successfully completed in a timely fashion, as well as provide infrastructure to speed up communication and data collection across the country.
